THE WISDOM OF LOSING WEIGHT

“You see, when I come back from Europe and start eating American food, I’m constipated for days, gain back more weight than I had before, and I’m tired all the time.”

“Exactly.”

“So now, I guess I understand all the principles of The Happy Body program.”

Aniela, who had been listening to us for the past few minutes, said, “Actually, there’s another point.

It’s not enough just to eat organic food it must be complete organic food. You could eat organic white bread, but that would still be empty calories. Complete foods are mixtures of proteins, fats, and vegetables or fruits. Complex carbohydrates, such as rice, wheat, and corn are also incomplete and should be complemented with vegetables or fruits.”

“By the way,” Jerzy said, “complex carbohydrates are exactly what we feed to pigs, which is why they’re forty-five percent fat, compared to wild pigs, which are only three percent fat.”

“Really?”

“Not only that,” Aniela said, “but to digest rice, wheat, and corn without vegetables or fruits, your body must use up its own vitamins, minerals, and enzymes when you do that, your metabolic rate drops, and you get tired. Then you think that your fatigue is due to hunger, not to missing nutrients. That message misleads you to eat more than you need, and you gain weight.”

“But,” Jack said, “I was always told that all food is good that what I need to do is to have variety, but control the amounts.”

“Well, as I said, not all food is good food,”

Aniela smiled. “Even if you eat organic food, you still have to have controlled variety. Would you like to see how variety really works?”

“Sure.”

“What kind of car do you drive?”

“A Lexus.”

“Okay. Tomorrow, you’ll rent a Chevy Chevette and drive it the whole day. The next day, you’ll rent a Toyota pickup truck and drive it the whole day. The third day ”

“Alright, I get it! But food is not cars.”

Aniela thought a moment. “Well, then, let’s look at it a different way. Can you imagine a sprinter saying, ‘Running is boring, I think I’ll try boxing’? Or Mozart saying, ‘I’m bored with music, I think I’ll take up painting’? There would be no Picassos or Emily Dickinsons or Einsteins if people didn’t repeat the same things over and over without becoming bored. Perfection is what makes us excellent. As Aristotle said, ‘We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.’ Whether you’re a musician or an engineer or an athlete, you must enjoy repetition for the sake of perfection. If you can master that habit, you will achieve more in life and have more fun.”

“You’ve convinced me!” Jack said. “I want my body to be happy, and you’ve shown me exactly how to do it. To lose weight, I must train anaerobically and eat the right amounts and kinds of organically grown foods every three hours.”

“You’ve got it!” Aniela said with a big smile.

“Now you understand all the principles of The Happy Body program except one.”

“There’s more?”

“Yes. Relaxation. You actually lose more fat when you’re relaxed than when you’re tense.”

“You’re kidding.”

“No, there are good scientific reasons for it. Just as everybody knows that they lose fat when they sleep well and wake up rested, the same thing is true during the day. When you are relaxed, your body burns its own fat for energy. If you are tense, your body burns its muscle for energy. So, whether you only want to lose weight and be youthful, or you want to become an Olympic champion, it is wise to be as relaxed as possible.”

“I never thought about that. Maybe that’s why I’ve been tired all the time. To have a happy body,

I must have a happy mind.”
